About the property

St. Albans, Maine

Immerse yourself in quaint New England charm by staying at this delightful St. Albans vacation rental house. This picturesque log home is surrounded by thick trees and complete privacy, making it the ultimate setting for travelers seeking a truly relaxing, secluded escape!

With 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and enough sleeping accommodations for 10 guests throughout 2,500 square feet of lovingly appointed living space, this expansive house is a fantastic size and layout for multiple families or a group of close friends traveling together. As soon as you first step through the front door, you’ll immediately fall in love with the home’s many unique touches, such as a large stone fireplace and cast-iron stove, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for your vacation. Stay entertained during your downtime by watching your favorite cable show on one of the home’s 3 TVs, or surf the web via the complimentary wireless internet access. Prepare delicious home-cooked meals in the charming fully equipped kitchen before gathering around the adjacent dining area for a fun family dinner. Should you need to do laundry during your stay, a new washer and dryer are provided for your convenience. 

You and your companions will love spending time outside on either of the home’s spacious decks - the wraparound deck leads to an enormous back deck, surrounded by complete privacy. There are so many beautiful trees on the property that in the summertime, you are nestled in and can barely see the main road! If you’re in the mood for adventure, you’ll find an ATV and snowmobile trail system close to the house, which can be accessed directly from the property and ridden as far as Canada!

The small, quaint, rural New England town of St. Albans has that quintessential charm feeling, offering many planned activities and sitting on Big Indian Lake, which is about 2.5 miles away from the log house. You’ll find many other terrific local restaurants nearby in local towns about 10-20 minutes away. Venture just 15 minutes over to Pittsfield, Maine for a fun night out at the movie theater. Waterville and Bangor, about 45 minutes away, offer more large-shopping stores, as well as many events. A lot of the surrounding towns have many all-year round events, such as Egg Festival, Summerfest, Snowmobiling Riding events in Newport, and more. 

The golfers in your group will find excellent golf courses close by in Pittsfield and Palmyra, and outdoor enthusiasts will find numerous outstanding opportunities for hunting, fishing, kayaking, hiking, biking, and even moose-watching within close proximity of the property. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park can both be reached in about 2 hours from the house, and Moosehead Lake in Greenville can be reached in only 45 minutes. Camden and Rockport are on the Coast, both accessible in a 1.5-hour drive. Baxter National Park, Sunday River, Sugarloaf, Mount Katahdin, Appalachian Trail, L.L. Bean, Freeport, and a myriad of other notable attractions are all within a couple hours of driving from the property. Regardless of how you choose to spend your time and no matter what season you plan to visit, this wonderful St. Albans vacation rental home will quickly become a place you want to return year after year!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year my friends and I have rented this house. The house is exactly as described, plenty of room, well maintained, and clean. We enjoyed our stay and will rent again next year.

Beautiful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our overall experience was very good. Beautiful, clean cabin off of a main road that is a bit in the country. The only real negatives were the spotty wi-fi and lack of local content on the Dish, but, it was nice for being in the country, where cable TV does not exist. We would rent the cabin again in a heartbeat.

Needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

This property was ok but not special. The garage had a dented door and broken window to greet us upon arrival. The storm door on the main enterance was falling apart and the broken piece was laying on the ground. These two issues did not affect our stay but did give a less than great first impression. It was super difficult to find light switches. There is no door on the main bathroom downstairs which is off the dining room. That was a bit of an issue. The stairs going to the bedrooms on the second floor are very narrow and we had to be very careful going up and down. All in all, we liked the rental, but would not stay there again if on the area. The Evolve team that represented this property gave us outstanding service throughout our booking and after arrival. I highly recommend using Evolve!

Owner's Response: Hi Cindy, Thank you for your review. We are sorry that our property did not live up to your expectation. As far for the damage we apologize about this, we have worked hard to have the window repaired and unfortunately this is something we could not finish between the previous guest stay and your arrival. This home has a lot of character including some quarks which you noted. Due to the log home construction this causes the stairs to be a bit more narrow than a standard staircase. Other quarks include the bathroom on the main floor which does have locks on both doors. There is a second bathroom on the same floor to accommodate those that do not feel comfortable with the cowboy style doors. Thank you again for your review and we are sorry that this home did not meet your expectations. At Your Service, Evolve

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay in St. Albans. Was able to get some friends together for my wife's birthday and everyone really enjoyed their stay. Clean and has everything you could need. Had a few questions before check in and the owner was very helpful. Would certainly consider staying again.
